    Conklin Groove Tools 4
    Killer quilt finish. Very thin, fast neck with crazy low action. The neck shape, feel and action remind me very much of the recent Ibanez SR series basses (I currently have an SR1300). The two necks feel almost identical.

    Tone is reminiscent of EMG tone. Not thin, not's cutting, yet warm.

    Finish has some checking (thin cracking in the clear coat from aging ("shrinkage'), but otherwise good to go.

    Price does not include shipping, however, I'll split it with ya! :)


    This Conklin Groove Tools GT-4 bass is Used and in Good Condition; no major dents, just some finish checking/crackling on the clearcoat and some very light finish nicks. The neck is straight, back of the neck is smooth, truss rod turns smoothly in both directions, the frets and fingerboard are in excellent condition (no grooves or flat spots) and the action has been professionally set low with a new set of strings. The neck is very fast and the bass plays beautifully. The bass will be securely packed and fully insured.

    Had to fix the pics due to one of the basses not being allowed for sale here due to forum policies....

    Absolutely bonkers deal on that Lakland as well. If didn't already have a US 494, I'd snag that right up.

    There's a faux-dera on ebay. Looks like a different bass... Wood grain is different. Who makes these?

    Update: only the Squier and Conklin remain! My intent was to sell some of these local, however, I had to ship them all. As a result, I'm now out of spare gig bags, so these will be packed without if I'm shipping the remaining basses.

    Everything is gone w the exception of the Conklin and the Squier, so I made a thread for the Squier and dedicated this thread to the Conklin.

    It's really hard to see, but here you go. Some Checking in the clear coat coming from the pickup cavities, etc. Not too many of them and again, you really have to look for it. I had to tilt the bass in the light and angle the camera on my phone to capture these. Just tough to see....
